Hi guys
WELL JUST SIGNED UP AND JUST BOUGHT MY 2010 ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi with the vvt and the trx off road package . im looking forward to chit chats with you all . i havent gone through the manuel as of yet. is there anything that you guys can tell me about the truck . little tid bits about the truck ,highly recommended mods etc. i know there is the predator for the truck . im not looking to highly mod the truck maybe just a little to make it a bit nicer shifting better mpg . also what bedliner is better the rhino liner or the herculier.also what would be a good bed cover ? not sure what i shoul dbe looking for, this is my first pickup truck. im not sure what to expect or do . i realize these may be a fee questions of the bat but might as well hit the ground running.

Welcome to the Z! First off glad you stopped by and hope you get all the info you need. Question, what's the vvt? are you talking about the MDS system?

As for some of your comments, the predator isn't released for the '10 yet that i've heard of, so be patient and good things will come :smileup: If you're looking for just some good mods, then a CAI, exhaust, and the predator all make for simple bolt ons that add HP and MPGs. I have a rhino liner and love it, it's stood up to spilled battery acid... good product. Things to keep an eye out for are a shimmy in the front end (happened with some of the '09s) and a carpet issue under the driver mat.
